I have a tendency to have a very empty fridge. I hate grocery shopping and I eat mostly vegetables and meat (see: Lazy Paelo), so while the meat stays good in the freezer, my veggies tend to go bad fast. Or I have frozen ones. My freezer is generally full.
What I do have a lot of is condiments. Lots and lots of random sauces, spices and add-ons that seem to live in my fridge forever. So when I realized I had a defrosted steak sitting in my fridge from Saturday (when I chose to go out to eat with friends instead of cooking it), I decided to figure out a way to use up a few of those jars.
Here’s what I used: some olive oil, garlic, horseradish, dijonnaise mustard, worcestershire sauce, and some salt/pepper. I kinda eyeballed everything, but I would guess I used a tablespoon of the garlic, horseradish and mustard, a teaspoon of worcestershire and two or three tablespoons of olive oil. I whisked it all together and then coated my steak in it.
(I took these photos with my phone, so not the best quality…)
I didn’t feel like getting a grill dirty, so I broiled my steak in my tiny broiler with the leftover sauce dumped on top:
I’ve never tried broiling my meat before, so it turned out tougher than I intened. I prefer my steak to be medium rare – this was probably well done. I did about 4 minutes on each side.
Then some steamed green beans, and I was done! It actually tasted pretty good, if I do say so myself! I might try a little less olive oil next time, but I’ll definately attempt this again.
